It’s another season and another opportunity for the Cincinnati Bengals to take a step forward in the NFL postseason picture, as the franchise is riding a seven-game playoff losing streak. The Bengals have lost six straight in the Wild Card round, with defeats in 2005, 2009, and in each of the last four seasons spanning from 2011-2014.
The process of teammates getting comfortable with each other is over and done with, but there’s always an extra chemistry component that can be built upon and the Bengals are hoping something new starts developing in the upcoming set of preseason games. With information on secondary market Bengals tickets provided by RazorGator.com, below are the average ticket prices and get-in prices for their schedule prior to Week 1 of the regular season.
8/14/2015 | Cincinnati Bengals vs. New York Giants | Paul Brown Stadium | Average Price: $87.35 | Get-in Price: $17
8/24/2015 | Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Cincinnati Bengals | Raymond James Stadium | Average Price: $38 | Get-in Price: $4

9/3/2015 | Indianapolis Colts vs. Cincinnati Bengals | Lucas Oil Stadium | Average Price: $33 | Get-in Price: $4
The Bengals’ preseason opener is their most expensive game during the four-game slate, as they host the New York Giants at Paul Brown Stadium tomorrow night. The average ticket price is $87.35 with a get-in price of $17. The Bengals then hit the road to play the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Jameis Winston, and the rest of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.
The most valuable preseason game is in Week 3, when the starting position players from each team usually play the most. It is typical for the starters to come out and play a series or two after halftime to get into that routine again and back into rhythm. The average ticket price for this affair against the Bears is $67.61 with a get-in price of $23.
The preseason finale is surprisingly the Bengals’ least expensive game, as Cincinnati travels to Lucas Oil Stadium to take on the Indianapolis Colts. The starters are unlikely to play much in this contest, as both teams are expected to be playoff contenders after both making the postseason again a year ago and don’t want any last-minute injuries before the games start to count. Interestingly, it was Indianapolis that knocked out Cincinnati last year in the Wild Card round.
